LDConfig file with LDD colors


LDConfig file with LDD colors
#1
I created a new LDConfig file using RGB colors from LDD:


.ldr   LDConfig.ldr (Size: 32.34 KB / Downloads: 3)

with the following conventions:

* LDraw and BrickLink mostly share naming conventions for their colours.
* Where possible LEGO colour numbers were used.
* The LEGO numbers, names and LDD colours are taken directly from LEGO Digital Designer.
* Colours were compared with Ryan Howerter colour list.
* Rubber colours got their value from the correspondent solid or transparent colour.
* Some transparent colours were altered so that they can be displayed with their LDraw alpha level.
* Edge colours for solid, pearl, metallic colours were calculated the following way:
  If the lightness value L in the HSL colours system was above 20% a Gray with 20% relative
  luminance in the terms of RGB-Gray was used.
  If the lightness value L in the HSL colours system was below 20% a Gray with 50% relative
  luminance in the terms of RGB-Gray was used.
* Edge colours for transparent, chrome, glitter colours were calculated the following way:
  The lightness value L in the HSL colours system was lowered by 20 %. If the lightness value L in
  the HSL colours system was below 20% it was rosen by 20%.

What do you think of it?

I not see on new image part with color "Common Material > 10047" - is it OK?

"Trans Sticker" (10047) color works well in LeoCAD.

And here is comparison of "Trans Sticker" (10047; on the left) and "Trans Clear" (47; on the right) on dark background.

Both images (when I try save it) has same name: visualldconfig.png

Should be visualldconfig-old.png and visualldconfig-new.png (or add its update date in names)

Actually they are stored in different Brickshelf folders. See the whole picture here: http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=404380

Personally speaking I'm fine with solid but would revert the trensparten colors back to the old version as those are optimized for alpha-channeling.

Here's an updated version of the LDConfig.ldr with the old transparent colors restored:

Philo kindly provided a visual version of it.
